It began 1954 as a national holiday. In the year of 1938 it was mad a national holiday but it was called Armistice Day but was later changed to Veterans Day on June 11th 1954 to honor all the veterans. The main reason why Veterans Day was created were to honor all the veterans who live with us and among us who served any branch of the military who helped serve and protect our country. The significant number of eleven as is relates to veterans day is when On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as the Great War. Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938.
Therefore, the US created unconditional terms of surrender, knowingly going against the Japanese ethic of honour and against the institute of the emperor, whom most Americans probably wanted dead. Consequently, the use of the atomic bomb became a way to avenge America's fallen soldiers while also keeping the USSR in check in Europe. The Japanese civilian casualties did not matter in this strategy. Also, it did not prevent the Cold War, as the USSR was just a few years behind on a-bomb research. At the time, revenge, geopolitics and an expensive project that could not be allowed to simply rust away, meant the atomic bomb had to be hastily deployed “in the field” in order to see its power and aftermath – though little was known about radiation and its effects on humans.
The 108th Air Defense Artillery Brigade traces its lineage to the 514th Coast Artillery Regiment (Antiaircraft), which was formed in Schenectady, New York in October, 1923.

The 108th was then moved to Camp Stewart, Georgia on 14 October 1943.

Two-thirds of the Japanese were American citizens. Their only crime was that they were of Japanese ancient. The Japanese imprisoned during World War II belonged to one of two groups called Issei and Nisei. The Issei were Japanese citizens who came to America to get a better life. They were not allowed to become citizens of the United States because the Naturalization Act of 1790 limited citizen to “any alien, being a free white person.” At the time Asians were considered nonwhite.

Should have America dropped the atomic bomb? In this essay I am going to say whether America should have dropped the atomic bomb. The two main points is yes they should have or the shouldn’t have. The first main point was that USA were worried by Japanese expansion so which they banned all their trading going to Japan, which stopped 80% of all the oil supplied to Japan in the summer of 1941. After this outbreak from the Americans the Japanese hit back with a surprise attack on the Americans which allowed the conquest of South-East Asia and the Pacific before the Americans had even recovered from the surprise attack.
On December, 7th, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. As a result the Americans decided to intern those of Japanese descent on the west-coast of the United States. The Japanese were uprooted from their homes and were relocated to internment camps where they would live their lives. Japanese internment was a horrid act put upon those of Japanese ancestry in World War II, only using the common good as evidence to judge why the Japanese should be interned. The Civil liberties of the Japanese on the west-coast were more important than the common good because there was no valid evidence that the Japanese were planning an attack with their homeland.
